I have been working at Bank of America

Pros

I joined Bank of America about seven months ago as a Teller, and I am shocked by how much I have enjoyed working for the company thus far. I work in a smaller branch, which may influence the environment, but my coworkers made me feel as though I had always been there. The management is friendly and approachable, and you can easily and quickly move up within the company. In fact, I've found that here, more than any other place I have worked, the company wants its employees to rise quickly in the ranks. The banks continental reach provides an avenue for me to travel across the nation without the fear of finding a new job.

Cons

Bank of America runs more like a sales company, than bank. Even tellers have sales goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're already the biggest bank in America, if not the world, stop forcing everyone to be a salesman

    I worked at Bank of America

    Pros

    Great benefits package for part time employees they also offer an excellent tuition reimbursement program that I have found to much be better than the leading competition. They reimbursed me for over 7,000 worth of tuition costs only working 20 hours a week and when I left two years later they did not require me to pay it back.

    Cons

    Really poor management - associate connection

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can more effectively influence associates with positive reinforcement than with negative criticism.

    I have been working at Bank of America

    Pros

    Coworkers are wonderful. The opportunity for growth is there if you hunt it down and take your career in your own hands. However, this is uneven based on politics and your 'beginning' point.

    Cons

    Management not good at managing. Instead they are simply good at their job. These are two distinct competencies that the bank can get wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more. Provide more coaching, question more but be less accusatory.
